“I don’t choose what I Paint. It’s very, very difficult to write a Song or to paint a picture. And I think people who do it, whose work we admire, like John Prine — he doesn’t one day sit down and think, ‘I know, I’m going to write a song about old people and what it must be like to be ignored in old age and the connections between people.’ He wrote that song after he spent a summer delivering laundry to old people’s homes and he would sit and talk to some of the old folk before. And so it’s an expression of some love that he felt in his life and maybe all great work stems from love and from the ability to love.” — Roger Waters
